The Professional Services Division of the McKinney Police Department offers a Citizens Police Academy each spring and fall for residents to learn more about their police department, police work and things they can do for their own safety. Participants of the academy are introduced to traffic-related laws, DWI stops, crime scene investigations, SWAT, K9 and participate in other police functions. Graduates of this academy are eligible for further training in two volunteer groups: Citizens on Patrol (COP) and McKinney Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (MCPAAA).
